I was lucky, because unlike most new bloggers, I already had a built-in readership by the time I hit "publish" on that first post.
Wanna know how that was possible? Read the somewhat surprising story, here (Part I) and here (Part II).
It may also surprise you to learn who these two people are, whom I describe in Part I:
Then came the summer of '09. I was newly pregnant with my eighth child, and we were thrilled. I was also acutely aware of the pain of two dear friends, devout and worthy, who were suffering from infertility and secondary infertility. I wanted to be sensitive, and I also wanted to help in some way.Anyone want to take a guess (besides the ladies themselves)? Both will be familiar to regular readers!
Anyway, I am so grateful for two remarkable years (and now two blogs), and I am humbled that so many of you have stuck around from the beginning, even as the Bubble expanded out of the cozy Catholic IF community and into the broader world!
God is good!
